You Start Dying Slowly

If you do not make the necessary changes…
You don’t change your job inspite of being totally bogged down by it;
You don’t change your decision about some thing, even when you know it’s wrong;
You kill your self-esteem, you let someone trample over you;

If you don’t risk what is safe,
If you don’t go after what’s uncertain,
If you don’t chase your dream, your desire,

If you don’t allow yourself…
… Atleast once in a lifetime

To run away from sensible advice

You start dying slowly
